EXHIBITION "COMO (...) COISAS QUE NÃO EXISTEM - SELEÇÃO DE OBRAS" (IN ENGLISH: "HOW TO (...) THINGS THAT DON'T EXIST - SELECTED WORKS"
The FAAP campus in São José dos Campos hosts the first stage of the traveling exhibitions of the 31st Biennial of São Paulo, held in 2014, "Como (...) coisas que não existem - Seleção de obras", opening on February 24.
Curated by Charles Esche Galit Eilat, Nuria Enguita Mayo, Pablo Lafuente and Oren Sagiv, the exhibition gathers the works of artists like Romy Pocztaruk (Brazil), Michael Kessus Gedalyovich (Israel) and Teresa Lanceta (Spain). After São José dos Campos, it will be hosted in the FAAP campus of Ribeirão Petro, in April.
The exhibitions in the FAAP campi aim to recreate the experience developed in the Biennial Pavilion. According to Pablo Lafuente, there is a connection between the works of the artists presented here.
"Teresa Lanceta's rugs recognize the knowledge of the northern communities of Africa and relate directly to the records of Romy Pocztaruk's travel by the Trans-Amazonian Highway. The urge of a new relationship with the world generated by his journeys founds its complement in the Gadalyovich's amulets, collected during the trip from the Eden Hills in Israel toward the Brazilian Amazon" said Lafuente.
The exhibition can be seen until April 18, Monday to Friday, from 9h AM to 9h PM, and Saturdays, from 9h AM to 5h PM. Free entrance.
